The evenings may be crisp, but that doesn’t mean you ought to stay rugged up at home. Perth’s small bar scene is flourishing, and features everything from dimly-lit, carnival-themed basement bars to friendly neighbourhood spaces with plenty of comfy couches. Escape the frostier nights with these seven small cosy bars!

Bark

A local neighborhood bar and café in Subiaco, Bark is in fact the smallest bar in town. Don’t be deterred by this, Bark offers old-fashioned hospitality and friendly service. The bar has a relaxed vibe and great Australian beverages personally sourced by its bar team. There’s even a virtual fireplace and board games available to complete the cosy atmosphere.

Bobeche

Step below the CBD and into the dimly-lit, enchanting Bobeche bar. Trademarked for its offering of free-flowing popcorn, this carnival-themed bar is heavily influenced by the golden era of speakeasies and is the perfect late-night hang for city bar-hoppers. Perhaps most famous for serving their cocktails in decorative teapots, Bobeche also offer a Hot Coconut Buttered Rum special during the cooler season.
